Kenya's Samburu National Reserve recently teamed up with Google Street View to provide users with a virtual safari experience. Although many people appreciate the beauty of wild animals, few have the opportunity to observe them in person. This program provides an easy way for users to observe wild animals from the comfort of their own home.

In order to create a virtual safari experience, Google relies on vehicle and backpack-mounted camera technology. With the cameras in place, the Google Street View team can go about filming the sprawling reserve. The Samburu National Reserve is particularly important due to its large population of wild elephants. The new program helps assist conservation efforts by tracking and managing the elephant herds.

The unique program gives viewers a glimpse of rare species that few are ever to see in person.
